Patricia Obrien started this petition to U.S. House of Representatives and

This country was founded by immigrants looking for a new/better life.  With each generation came another group of immigrants to this nation searching for their "American Dream."  Our government should be a true representation of it's diverse population.

As the position of the President of the United States is limited to 2 terms, there should also be term limits for each and every Member of Congress.  Modern day government is no longer a government "of the people, by the people."  Our Representatives have become much too comfortable with their privilege and have forgotten that it's a privilege to represent your constituents and should not be a career.  Congress should truly be a representation of the people that comprise this great nation and should be ordinary citizens not career politicians.

Career politicians have created an entire industry of lobbyists and other special interest groups that have manipulated/controlled the citizens and businesses in this nation far too long.

I believe we can get there faster if we have term limits for all our Representatives.  I believe those that are currently seated, and have already exceeded their term limit should be allowed to finish out their current term and not seek re-election.

The question is:  Will they (Members of Congress) listen to the will of the people and sponsor a bill that limits their own political careers or will they put themselves above the will of the very people they are suppose to represent?
